As global online commerce continues to expand and emerging economies in Asia, Latin America and Africa increasingly join the global online marketplace, international eCommerce companies are booming. However, with each additional market comes additional complexity, from local payment preferences and currencies, to new fraud environments. In order to effectively manage this complexity and take maximum advantage of opportunities for growth, merchants need to cut through the clutter of raw payment data and find the patterns, trends and issues that need their attention most. With Elevate, they now have a comprehensive and sophisticated tool that organizes unstructured data into targeted dashboards and lets them interact with the data in order to find exactly those insights that will help them to make the decisions that accelerate the growth of their business.

Elevate combines GlobalCollect’s payments knowledge with strategic guidance from leading international eCommerce companies and the industry-leading data visualization platform by Tableau Software*, to create a payments intelligence solution consisting of highly interactive management dashboards that answer real business questions. Centered around 5 key performance areas, these dashboards reveal the types of payments performance insights that let merchants quickly and easily identify trends and patterns, opportunities for optimization, and issues that need immediate attention. The 5 key performance areas in Elevate are:

  • Your Performance, which presents a holistic view of payments performance across the 6 KPI’s that merchants indicate are most relevant to them;
  • Commercial Insights, which provides insight into consumer payment behavior;
  • Authorization Rates, which reveals key authorization trends such as card performance and rejection reasons;
  • Payment Funnel, which provides an overview of the payment stages a transaction goes through; and
  • Chargeback Insights, which helps prevent fraud through chargeback analysis

Elevate is browser-based, making it time, place and device agnostic, and was designed to support multiple functions within international eCommerce organizations. For senior management, Elevate provides access to comprehensive reports on global payments performance and trends, that help guide strategic decisions and grow revenue. Payment managers benefit from the granular insights they need to identify opportunities and optimize conversions on a day-to-day basis. Fraud managers can analyze chargeback data for unexpected patterns, and take swift and targeted measures to counter fraud and lower costs.

“Our customers rely on us to not only process their payments, but to help them realize their full commercial potential through conversion optimization, international expansion, and fraud reduction,” said Thomas P. Staudt, Chief Executive Officer of GlobalCollect. “When it comes to success in international online commerce, knowledge is power. With Elevate, we give our merchants the knowledge they need to keep improving and optimizing their business and reach that maximum potential.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
